Why brew beer at home? It’s not a quick process ; most beers take four weeks or longer before they’re ready to drink. It’s not cheap; while a batch of beer can cost less per bottle than buying craft beer, it can’t compete on price with mainstream brands. It’s not difficult, but the terminology and technical details can seem daunting to a beginner. What brewing at home does offer is the chance to try beers that can’t be found in stores, like the White House Honey Ale.
